      Life is wonderful. Trial & error has shown me that things do change for the better if you are willing to work for it. 8 years and counting!

    Why I’m Here:
    • I’m in Recovery
    I remember when I first stopped using drugs. I felt like I didn't belong anywhere and that no one understood. At lease when everyone was using, we all had something in common. Now, here I was, clean and I didn't fit in anywhere. The people still using were dangerous for me and the "normies" (people who didn't use) just didn't understand where I was coming from and I didn't understand them either. But day by day and year by year, I have found my way back in to society and I have many people to thank for it. I found people who could answer questions in ways I understood. I found people who supported me without judgement. I found friend in people I wouldn't have thought twice about. I learned to open my horizons to all the possibilities around me and not to judge anything until I knew the whole story. Now, I am that person to others who are trying to find their way. an in that way, I never forget where I came from.
